Honeymoon trailer (9.12.14 release)

What Game of Thrones fan doesn’t love Rose Leslie as Ygritte telling Jon Snow that he knows nothing?  Well here’s a genre flick starring Leslie as a newlywed to Harry Treadaway, Dr. Victor Frankenstein of Showtime’s Penny Dreadful.  Their honeymoon takes them to a family cottage in the woods, and as always in these types of movies, that’s just not a good place to be.  However, this first feature from writer/director Leigh Janiak isn’t a slasher flick, but instead more psychological, pulling inspiration from the likes of early Polanski and Philip Kaufman’s ’78 Invasion of the Body Snatchers.  The film was a hit at Tribeca and SXSW, but be forewarned that early festival reviews have been mixed, including Variety calling it “flat and forgettable” and Film School Rejects criticizing it for giving too much away too early on, leaving the characters to play catch-up with the audience for most of its running time.  Still, I’m planning on checking it out as a genre fan and for Leslie and Treadaway.
